, that it could slow the economy in many areas. you have a lot of defense contractors worrying about what will happen at the turn of the new year. it is really anybody's guess. in terms of congress and whether they can come together after the election, but before every new person takes office, there is hope that congress and the white house can come to an agreement anteater postponed those spending cuts and tax increases, or come to -- and either postpone those spending cuts and tax increases, or come to some agreement. i think everyone thinks they may wait -- they may postpone and wait until the new session comes in and let them figure it out. but the so-called lame-duck session might see reasons to make a deal before the new people coming in. we will see. host: the next call comes from adam in phoenix, arizona. you say you are a student. what are you studying? caller: and studying economics. host: you have heard our conversation this morning. and what do you think? caller: i have. mr. rugaber said he was surprised with the unemployment dropping, but i was just reading about a month ago
our current level of defense spending over the next eight years. he would spend way more than a cold war-style drawdown. way more than the sequester, but he would treat the budget as the new normal with slight increases over time. that's the obama plan for the biggest single thing on which we spend discretionary money. mr. obama's opponents, on the other hand, the math ticket, the hard-nosed practical numbers guys, their plan for defense spending looks like this. ta da! that's what mitt romney is proposing for military spending. an otherwise enormous amount of money. this is what they are planning on doing. the highest level of military spending since the korean war. because, you know, forget your hope and change. what the country needs is math, math, math. how does the ticket plan to balance this giant plus sign contained in their plan? this massive increase in government spending. where does the minus come from if they want to increase spending by that much? this was the scene today in a place called van meter, iowa. this is what greeted mitt romney today as
mccain said the other day this is the first time in 51 years that the senate hasn't passed a defense authorization bill. the problem right now, i don't think we will convince harry reid to change -- >> but the beauty and election you don't have to convince. you just have to replace. that's why we made a republican majority. >> given the people have in congress right now i would rather see gridlock than then getting to the kind of crazy ideas putting us more in debt just like raising the debt ceiling. you know it's coming again. you know congressman flake is going to vote for. maybe this time, maybe i stand corrected, it appears only. he votes for raising the debt ceiling when there's republican president. a rather than have these people and their content to march is done the same road we been marching down, we are better off with gridlock. we need to change hearts and minds. >> we gotcha. i want to know your opinion on the filibuster. is it being abused? should be done away with? it is not in the constitution. >> it absolutely is being abused spent do you think you think is probably?

focused right now on ideas, on the defense of the ideas, bold ideas, as romney articulated last week. he changed the whole narrative. the obama campaign's effort to undermine it by these silly attacks, republicans can't stand young people, they want to kick them off their parents' health care, they want to go after women, the war on women. and now the new option, they're going after big bird, oh, my gosh. it's silly. >> when paul ryan says that the fullest extent of his experience in foreign policy is that he's voted to send people to war, when you've got joe biden whose son not only served for a year but also as a senator from delaware, he's been out there at dover sending troops off, welcoming home those caskets and not to mention he has a foreign policy expert. >> is he really a foreign policy expert? every single position that joe biden has taken on foreign policy issues for his career has been wrong. he has opposed every positive step we've taken in foreign policy. so bring him on when it comes to foreign policy. i hope that he actually does. >> the one thing you haven't mentioned o
of defense and the national security council. prior to becoming chairman, he served briefly as the army's 37th chief of staff. general dempsey is a bit of an unexpected appointment. he had just been sworn in as the army chief of staff a couple of months prior, but when the nomination process for another candidate stalled, general dempsey was called to serve a grateful nation, and he has done so with distinction. since taking the chairman's job a year ago, the 37-year army veteran has made headlines by dealing with the infamous quran-burning pastor by calling him up and asking him to withdraw his support for the anti-muslim video that sparked protests across the middle east. he expressed disappointment over the navy seal who published an unauthorized account of the killing of osama bin laden. he said an israeli attack on iran would clearly delay but probably not destroy iran's nuclear program. he has stressed the need to retool the military for a postwar world with smaller pentagon budgets, and most recently he has spoken about the need to turn up the volume on ways to help war veterans reint

,000 a year and couples making more than $250,000 a year. and number three, there was biden's defense of the hhs contraception mandate. >> no religious institution, catholic or otherwise, including catholic social services, georgetown hospital, mercy hospital, any hospital, none has to either refer contraception, none has to pay for contraception, none has to be a vehicle to get contraception in any insurance policy they provide. that is a fact. >> laura: false. today the u.s. conference of catholic bishops rebuked the vice president noting that the so-called accommodation, the obama administration promised for catholic hospitals, universities, and other religious charities isn't an accommodation at all. they will all still serve as a vehicle for contraception, abore that face drugs and sterilizations because their health insurance premiums still will cover those services. now, ryan himself had some difficulty on the foreign policy questions and allowed, i think, the moderator to cut him off too easily. without a doubt, joe biden's demeanor and his mendacity made him both less likeabl

. as i think more though the defense spending difference is actually important. here i take the president's side. governor romney has suggested the president's defense cuts would be excessive, but i think they have been fairly thoughtfully presented so >> jennifer: well, there is an -- there's -- i want to ask you about iran too in addition. would mitt romney for example be more likely to allow israel to strike first, iran if they are not satisfied with the -- you know the red line? >> that's -- that's the sort of body language and also the language that governor romney used this summer where he did suggest that israel has the ability to make the decision itself. i by the obama administration has been more his important to give israel any such green light. i think both have said an nuclear weapon is unacceptable but where you may see a little bit more difference is romney may be inclined earlier to bless a israel decision to use force or participate in it in himself. i think it's an important nuance. >> jennifer: very quickly what further sanctions

collectively has legitimacy beyond its specific military defense security functions. to what extent does the army retain political legitimacy to be a political actor. now, over the last eight years, the regular army has been off center stage. it's been in the wings. by getting rid of the previous chief of staff who overplayed his hand, he has persuaded the regular army to stay out of the political limelight. and that's simple by the problems facing him but it meant that he wasn't the only game. the other was the head of the political intelligence. so the dr, departments of -- [inaudible] which covers the whole of intelligence services, has become more powerful over the last eight years than it was previously. and there's been this polarization if you like within the regime between the presidency and the drs, the two crucial power centers in the executive of the state. what that means is that one thing that we have to ask ourselves is to what extent the algerian army can make a political comeback. in the event that there is a succession problem in the drs. i think a second aspect of this

and defenders coming up with new defenses. the defenses do evolve rapidly but the attackers, they see the defenses that are out there and defenders problem they have to protect everything and attackers only find one thing. so the bad guys do have the initiative and have it pretty consistently. tracy: last time you were here, you told ashley we were in the middle of a full-blown cyber war, right? if that is the case our government should be protecting us from the cyber war. this is only time i think there should be government intervention. how come the government hasn't come down to help the smaller banks? i get it. they can't afford to protect themselves. >> yeah i think we have to be a little circumspect about what the government can do. once again because these attacks are taking advantage of the very nature of the internet and how web servers work and how internet traffic works it becomes very difficult to say that, you know, can the government shut these things down? well this traffic looks completely legitimate until you see what's deep inside of it. it actually gets to a point w

that defense contractors must send out notices to employees that will be laid off. they are getting nervous. if you are a dividend investor in looking at it going from 15 to 45% in were one with some probability, -- in january, you are worried about being in the market. if we go over the fiscal club, it would be irresponsible in the extreme. the entire issue with the fiscal cliff is to get from here to spring 2013 being goods to words in the economy and not causing a recession. that should be the goal. if you look at the pieces of the cliff, the payroll tax cut, the temporary holiday, i think there is pretty much a bipartisan consensus that will go away. i consider it inconceivable we will get rid of the new taxes between now and june were one. -- january 1. that places a real premium on avoiding the rest of the tax hikes and spending cuts. i think the sensible thing to do is to say to congress, and your strong this in case -- your strongest debate, please extend tax rates for one year, and would you get to the sequester, the $109 billion across-the- board spending cuts for defense and non-
's look at the two really interesting categories. so defense, ryan and obama actually pretty much agree, they both want to spend about $5.5 trillion on defense over the next ten years. romney wants to spend $7.8 trillion on defense over the next ten years. so that kind of blows a hole in his budget. >> let me stop you right there. so we obviously, in the republican party, we have a bit of a battle between the realists and the neocons. the realists want to bring the spending down a bit more, agree with admiral mullen that one of the greatest risks we face when it comes to security is the debt over the long run. there is another faction of the republican party, and it appears that mitt romney is a part of that faction of neocons that believe that we need to keep spending an awful lot. >> look, we want to have the preeminent military in the world and we do and we're going to. you look at procurement programs like the joint strike fighter. the notion that there is not money to save in the pentagon budget, that it is not a bloated bureaucracy in many, many areas is just crazy. >> that's righ

seem like the president was trying to play defense and not make any mistakes because he was up at least in this race pretty handily in the swing states. not mentioning the 47% in that video, that was stunning. >> is it too late and later debates to come back with that now? you know, i liken it to a boxer almost. go back to your corner, you figure out what you didn't do right perhaps. but at that point is it too late? has america forgotten about the 47%? >> no, i don't think so. i think he can do that. not as effectively, because the first debate is usually the more watched debate. president george w. bush had a poor performance against john kerry and came back strong. last night the president was mocking his own performance. you have to accept you didn't do well, and come back and bring it to romney. but he's going to have to do that. >> okay. mitt romney, on the other hand, had a strong showing. what does he need to do to maintain any momentum he might have picked up? >> i think this presents the romney campaign with something they needed. they needed to hit the reset button. they need
